Al Buhr began building fly lines in the late 1970's as a way to improve his steelhead fishing. In 1980, he met Jim Green and joined the Fenwick team. Al mentored under Jim Green in both rod and line design. In 1989, Al joined Sage rods and shortly after, teamed up with Scientific Anglers.
In 1994, with Bruce Richards of Scientific Anglers, Al designed the Mastery Spey/Salmon Taper and later the Short Head and Mid Head spey lines. In 2004, Al chaired a committee that developed a line weight standard for two-hand fly lines an has become the AFTMA designation. As you can see, Al has a lot of experience with fly line design. This booklet puts all his knowledge in your hands; about how to design & build your own fly lines. Soft cover
